    I have recently had the pleasure of working with Gina Shingler of ERA Freeman & Associates. Although I'm an Oregon native, I currently live in California and needed someone to help me to sell my mother's manufactured home in Tualatin. I asked a CA realtor friend to help me find someone to in the Portland area who specialized in Manufactured Home sales. She made some calls and gave me Gina Shingler's name. I'm so grateful she did, because Gina has been wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to sell their home. From the start, Gina has been very helpful and patient; answering questions, explaining the process and walking me through all the paperwork. She listed the property as soon as I was ready, and promptly began a steady stream of showings. Having sold other properties in the past, I was immediately impressed with how quickly she began to show the home. Gina did a wonderful job keeping me informed regarding the lookers vs. potential buyers, providing valuable insight about how the home was being viewed. With Gina's feedback, I felt comfortable that the property was listed at the right price. Throughout our time working together, Gina has been extremely helpful and responsive. During that period, Gina had to work with the complication and disruptions of an out-of-state seller, difficult park managers, the restrictions of COVID and the Oregon wildfires. In spite of it all, Gina always responded with kindness and good humor, answering any and all questions and requests, whether it was a text or an email or an old-fashioned phone call. Gina successfully brought several full-price offers to the table and the property entered escrow. During the inspection process, Gina kept me well-informed about the various issues that arose and gave me great advice on the options available. Once we had a plan, Gina was very flexible and creative in finding the best and fastest method of implementing the required maintenance and small repairs. Since I was not available to help, Gina had to meet the contractors and make everything happen, and she did it quickly and well. I would wholeheartedly recommend Gina Shingler to any person wishing to sell their home in the Portland area. Gina did an excellent job selling my mom's home, was fun to work with and easy to get along with, even during these stressful times

    We were thinking of putting our house up for sale in Portland and buying one in Lincoln City. Our neighbor suggested we called Gina. We first read her reviews and we both thought "she must have a big family that wrote reviews for her". Nobody can be THAT good. I am glad to tell you we were wrong, Gina is THAT good. We were dealing with another realtor in Lincoln City and there were so many problems. We called Gina numerous times to ask her questions because we trusted her so much. She was a lifesaver. We could never express to her how much all her help meant to us. She sold our house within one day. From that point on she kept us informed with everything. Knowing the problems we were having with the house we were buying she checked in with us to see how things were going and offering to help anyway she could. By the time the houses closed I never even worried about anything with our sale because we knew Gina had it all handled. It was so much of a relief to know we only had to worry about the one we were buying. She never said anything to us that didn't work out exactly the way she said it would. She was our guardian angel. We never had a house sale go as smoothly as this one did. Gina is amazing in all aspects of her job. She came over when we needed her to, she always, always answered our calls and never left us in the dark. She in not only an amazing realtor, she is an amazing person. Our puppies even loved her. Please don't hesitate to call Gina. She is honest, trustworthy, prompt and most importantly she follows up with you everytime. If she says I will look into that and call you back, she actually does. What an asset to ERA Freeman & Associates. We miss her but know she is there if we ever need her for anything. Thank you Gina!

    Gina is a fantastic agent and there aren't enough words to explain how helpful she was for us in this market. She's also just a great person! With homes selling so quickly in the price range we were looking lately, Gina was extremely responsive and able to set up same day viewings for homes the same day that they were listed. This in itself was amazing as I had a fairly busy schedule to work with. Being first time home buyers, we always had an abundance of questions that Gina would readily know the answer to. If not, we would have it almost immediately after our meetings. She would patiently walk us through any paperwork and provide detailed explanations of everything that was happening. She is very friendly and really helps you look for a home that will suit everything you are looking for. If we ever need to move again, we will definitely be reaching back out! We loved working with Gina!

    My husband and I were first time homebuyers but I have been a mortgage professional for over 15 years. GINA IS AMAZING! I would highly recommend working with her. She is professional and personable. We all sorta just adopted her. :)

    Gina was always available to answer questions and was willing to work around our busy lives when scheduling viewings. She was tireless in helping us find the right home for the right price. I would recommend Gina to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell a home, and if we move again, she will be the first person I call!

    Gina was persistent and extremely helpful. It took us several months to find our home, but she was with us every step of the way, always available to answer questions and working with our schedules to meet us for showings. She was always mindful of our budget and the areas that worked for us, and when we would find a listing on our own, she was always willing to review it and make sure it would work for us. She worked diligently through the closing process with us, helping manage the paperwork as inspections and repairs were done. I would recommend Gina to ANYONE looking for a house, and will use her in a heartbeat if we decide to move again.

    We recommend Gina as your realtor without hesitation or reservation. We liked so many things about Gina. We were house shopping in a sellers market and houses were going fast. Gina was always there for us to get into a house either that day or the next. She responds to calls, emails and texts very quickly and totally dedicates herself to her clients. We had a tight budget and a list of specific requirements for our first home. I never, ever felt rushed or like we were inconveniencing her. She really encouraged us to wait until we found the right home. When Gina walks through a house with you, you will never feel like she is trying to convince you how that house is right for you. She actually walks around looking for issues and will point out anything she sees that might be a problem. I remember several occasions where she pointed out roof issues and slanting floors. She truly wants to help you find a house that you will love. As first time home buyers I felt that Gina did a great job of walking us through the process and keeping us informed. Gina was always on time and has a very genuine and calm presence. I just can't say enough good things about her. I have referred her to family and coworkers who also had a great experience with Gina and were successful in finding the perfect home for them. You will not be disappointed with Gina on your side as you look for your new home.

    Gina is absolutely wonderful! We started out wanting to buy a house and a couple of months in decided we wanted to build a house and buy property. She always got back to us (usually within minutes) immediately with any questions and always worked around our schedule for viewing home. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is the market!!! I also felt she always gave her most genuine, honest opinion of the house or property we where looking at... she never just tried to "make a sale" but rather genuinely wanted whatever we where looking at to be the best fit. If she saw any issues she would tell us right away!! Just wonderful!!!

    Gina not only has an ability to complete tasks in a timely manner but also to put you at ease when working above and beyond for you. My transaction of purchasing a home with Gina went so smoothly that I believe the reason is because of Gina. We were one of those clients that couldn't find something that they liked in an area and she was so patient with us. As a matter of fact we have come back to Gina to sell a home with her again.

    Working with Gina was amazing, she made my husband and I feel at ease and answered all of our questions along the way. When she was out of town for a weekend, she made sure we knew exactly how to get ahold of her and her team, and made us feel like we were still a priority. She kept us informed and checked in with us when it had been awhile since we viewed a listing, just to make sure we were okay and that nothing had changed on our end. She made sure to allow us our own time with each home we toured so that we could form our own opinions, and pointed things out that we may have missed. She was available nights and weekends, and even though we viewed a large number of homes, some of which were "quirky", she never once made us feel like we were monopolizing her time in any way - she wanted us to see everything so that we would get the home we truly wanted. As a first-time homebuyer who didn't really know what was out there, this was crucial for us to get to know the market. When we found the home that would eventually become ours, she knew that we had the "this is it" moment and helped us write an aggressive offer that would get us the home. Without Gina, I don't know that I would be as happy with the home we bought, and I know I wouldn't feel as comfortable as I do now in knowing we did things right and missed nothing.

    Gina was absolutely amazing as she helped us through our first home buying adventure. She was very quick to answer e-mails, texts and phone calls. She was always available when we needed her and she was always 100% dedicated to making sure we were well taken care of and we love our home!

    Gina is a rockstar! The greatest asset any home buyer could have. Her dedication and willingness to go above and beyond lets you know she is there to get the job done. I know we would have been at a total loss with out her in our corner. She genuinely cares about helping people find their home.

    Having started the home buying process with a different realtor, Gina was a welcome and refreshing change. She was readily available to help us in anyway she could. She's knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make sure she helps you find the home that fits your family. Quick response to calls/texts/emails. She was there to figuratively hold our hands every step of the way. We also had to change finance companies and she recommended a company that made the process seamless. I recommended Gina to a friend who also bought a house with her. If we ever find ourselves in a position to sell or purchase again, Gina will definitely be the realtor we call.
